  • This column is fun to write because I (at this late time in my life) learn so much about our area history. A reader called me recently with a question. I had to admit I had no idea what or whom he was talking about. His person of interest had much to do with our Las Vegas area history.

    “What did I know about Maximiliano Luna?” he asked. I had to admit the only thing I knew about that was luna is Spanish for moon and Camp Luna is just north of Las Vegas.

    Mora Elementary School students spent two days celebrating Black History Month by learning about the enslaved people in New Orleans.

    The students learned of how the people relentlessly toiled in an unjust system, while working and counting down the days until Sunday, when at least for half a day they were able to congregate in Congo Square.
